Chapter 248 A Fearsome Presence
“I heard you called the young man of the Johnson family?”
“Yes,” Jimmy replied vaguely. “You know that this is not in our territory. In Seaxas, we have to show some respect to the Johnson family.”
Upon hearing this, Davids’s indifferent eyes moved.
But only for a moment.
At this moment, Lucas was led into their booth by the manager.
Lucas’s gaze swept past Jimmy and Landon before finally landing on David.
He narrowed his eyes, and a complicated expression flashed across the depths of his eyes.
None of the three people in front of him were people he could provoke casually, especially David, who was sitting in the corner.
He greeted them one by one. “Mr. Shain, Mr. Walker.”
Landon raised his glass and toasted him. Then, he gestured for him to sit beside Jimmy.
Lucas walked over and sat down in a manner neither servile nor overbearing, but his gaze kept landing on David.
He felt like he had seen this person somewhere before.
But he couldn’t remember for a moment.
Coincidentally, Landon handed him a glass of wine.
He reached out to take it. When he raised his head to drink, he slowly looked at David again from the corner of his eye.
The man sat on the sofa casually. The collar of his shirt was slightly open, revealing his beautiful collarbone lines, revealing a hint of fierceness and
He exuded a natural noble aura, and the pressure around him was difficult to ignore. Even as he sat there motionless, he was inexplicably submissive.
David seemed to have sensed something and looked over.
Lucas suddenly froze when he met that pair of cold eyes that were as deep as a cold lake.
However, he did not look like a deserter who had lost his armor. Instead, he met the man’s eyes fearlessly.
“That’s Mr. Jones,” Landon introduced to Lucas. “You can call him David.”
When Lucas heard this, a hint of understanding flashed in the depths of his eyes.
Whether it was Landon in front of him, Jimmy, who was drinking and having fun, or “Mr. Jones” here, they all came from a place beyond the reach of ordinary people.
Located in North Ordax, it was not a city, but a large state composed of many cities.
It didn’t belong to any country in North Ordax, nor to any country or institution in the world. Instead, it was an independent region.
And Aureliana’s intelligence was highly classified.
Therefore, other than the heads of corporations and the leaders of various countries, the outside world was unaware of the existence of this place. Legend had it that there were once ancient Four Families in Aureliana, but they suffered riots in the continent decades ago.
At that time, many forces were eyeing them covetously, waiting for an opportunity to make a move.
However, to everyone’s surprise, the chaos in the continent subsided and Four Families in the continent were reshuffled overnight.
As for the existence of the Jones family, it was an existence that even the Elders in Aureliana had to be wary of!
Lucas’s eyes flashed as he finished the wine in his glass..
As more and more people came, the atmosphere became more and more lively, so everyone started playing dice.
As the saying went, people were in high spirits when involved in happy events. By rights, they should have had good luck, too. However, Jimmy was extremely unlucky.
Before long, all the wine on the table was in his stomach.
“Mr. Johnson, you’re in luck tonight.” Jimmy had a cigarette in the corner of
his mouth as he looked at Lucas meaningfully.
Lucas smiled and said calmly, “I was just lucky.”
Landon’s smile was very annoying. He looked at Jimmy with a provocative gaze. “Dude, don’t find an excuse for losing! If you’re willing to bet, admit defeat! Drink quickly!”
“Sure!” Jimmy put out his cigarette and rolled up his sleeves, resisting the urge to flip the table as he said, “I’ve never been afraid of anyone when it comes to drinking!“
